Description

What is Prozac?

Prozac and the generic alternative fluoxetine is an antidepressant.  Prozac is used to treat major depressive disorder, bulimia nervosa (an eating disorder), obsessive-compulsive disorder, and panic disorder. Prozac may also be prescribed along with another medication called olanzapine (Zyprexa) to treat manic depression caused by bipolar disorder.

This medication may improve your mood, sleep, appetite, and energy level and may help restore your interest in daily living. It may decrease fear, anxiety, unwanted thoughts, and the number of panic attacks. It may also reduce the urge to perform repeated tasks (compulsions such as hand-washing, counting, and checking) that interfere with daily living. Fluoxetine may lessen premenstrual symptoms such as irritability, increased appetite, and depression. It may decrease binging and purging behaviors in bulimia. 

How does Prozac work?

Fluoxetine is in a class of medications called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Fluoxetine affects chemicals in the brain that may be unbalanced in people with depression, panic, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive symptoms. These medications work by increasing the amount of serotonin, a natural substance in the brain that helps maintain mental balance.
